Many users have returned this semester with computers running Windows 8. Although eCampus (Blackboard Vista) is not designed to support Windows 8, our initial testing indicates that eCampus is accessible through Windows 8 with a few minor changes to the user’s computer. eCampus staff will continue testing Windows 8 with Blackboard Vista and keep you informed of any pertinent compatibility issues.
Please refer to Using eCampus with Windows 8 for changes necessary to access eCampus.
If you have any questions, please contact the OIT Service Desk at 304-293-4444.
